Salary bump after acquisition?

Oct 25, 2019 12 Comments

Have the employees of companies which were acquired by VMware seen a salary bump after the acquisition?

How about in other companies? Is it common for employees to see a salary bump when they get acquired by a bigger company?

      Not sure on how it will be for people coming from Pivotal...
      There is an obvious TC hike when moving from Start-up to Publicly traded company...
      Annual bonus
      RSU vs paper money

    VMware yes. Dell no. VMware tends to align job roles/levels and then make an effort to align comp if needed to match VMware levels if you don't meet the minimum.

      Workops, labs, other non R&D departments. Moral has been really low the past week given the layoffs and poor offers/offer timelines and unanswered questions.

    It’s only been a few weeks, but so far no change to salary portion of comp. RSUs/bonus yes, but not salary.

      lol yes. Sounds like we shouldn’t be expecting anything either.

      @AkXN67, were there any layoffs during the acquisition?

      No layoffs yet, but other than bonus structure change and an anemic retention bonus (<50k), there was no compensation change. We are now on the vmware revue schedule, so whatever that entails to get raises/promotions.
